Young Art Taipei 2011 Exhibition 台北國際當代藝術博覽會

Next weekend (5/13-15th) is the 3rd annual “Young Art Taipei” hotel art exhibition (台北國際當代藝術博覽會). If you’ve never been to a hotel exhibition, they’re pretty fun: each art gallery rents out a room and shows the art they want; guests can stroll through the hotel checking out the different rooms.

“Young Art” in Taipei is considered less than 45 – which means I still have 14 years before I’m famous enough to be invited by a gallery to display (artists can’t self-represent, they have to have a gallery backing them – although I don’t know why I couldn’t just rent a room myself and leave the door open and greet visitors. Maybe I’ll try that next time!)

If you’re a VIP with a pass, you can get into the opening on Thursday. If not, hours are 2-8pm Friday through Sunday. It’s located at the Dynasty Hotel, which is next to IKEA and the Outback Steak House on Tung Hua Rd. The closest MRT is NanJing Dong (East) Rd on the Brown Line.

There are some excellent galleries coming from Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea and Taiwan so you should see a lot of fresh, kick-ass contemporary Asian art. I’ll post some pictures next week of the art itself. Here’s a gallery list with the room numbers. You can buy tickets at the entrance on the 9th floor. Another requirement is that all art must be priced less than $800, which is cheap enough for nearly anyone who’s interested in starting out in art investment, or who just needs to decorate the living room. Serious art collectors could swoop in and make some smart purchases.
